Court Denies Disqualification Motion- sees issues clearly //Legal Ethics Forum

Legal Ethics Forum: Court denies DQ motion; sees the issues clearly
The New York Supreme Court (New York County) denied a DQ motion filed after a joint defense representation fell apart. The joint rep letter was well written and contained lots of warnings and a good explanation of the consequences of a falling out. The court realized that granting the motion would effectively prevent clients from safely entering into joint defense agreements even when it helped the clients. All in all, a job well done by the trial court. Bonus: the New York court cited California's Zador v. Kwan. (h/t: Law Firm Risk Management Blog)
